Indiana University Workshop for Teachers: Exploring the Dark Universe

During the summer of 2007, the IU Department of Astronomy, in collaboration with the IU Department of Physics and the IU School of Education, and in partnership with the SuperNova Acceleration Probe project and Sonoma State University, presented a 2-day workshop for middle school and high school science teachers on "Exploring the Dark Universe," funded through grants from Indiana Space Grant Consortium and the Department of Energy, Office of Science.

The workshop, held in late June at the IU School of Education, was attended by twenty teachers from middle and high schools in Indiana. The workshop included science content on astronomy, cosmology, dark matter, and dark energy, presented as as inquiry-based, classroom activities. The goals of the workshop were to provide teachers with a better understanding of the universe, to offer new opportunities for science in Indiana middle and high schools.
